Taylor Swift broke the record for most American Music Award wins by a female artist on Tuesday night.

Swift won Artist of the Year at the fan-voted show in Los Angeles, beating out Drake, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons and Post Malone for the top prize.

Swift had announced on Sunday that she was voting for Tennessee's Democratic Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, breaking her long-standing refusal to discuss anything politics. "Thank you guys so much, I appreciate it", she concluded while two guys stood on each side of her. "I'd never come up with a title before", Taylor said while accepting Favorite Album - Pop/Rock for reputation.

Swift also performed the show's opening number. In the rap/hip-hop and pop/rock categories, Drake is up for favorite male artist, favorite album and favorite song with "God's Plan".

As the most nominated artist of the night, the Bronx rapper delivered an electrifying performance of her No. 1 smash "I Like It" with help from J Balvin and Bad Bunny. She urged her fans to get educated on the candidates for their states, then get out and vote, as well.

For the month of October so far, 153,978 people have registered to vote. Bob Corker's seat. Swift, a Tennessee resident, also said she'd be voting for incumbent Rep. Jim Cooper, a Democrat. "I'm even more excited about the next chapter". "Go to Vote.org like Taylor Swift told you to", he said before handing a trophy to Shawn Mendes.
